PPE Scholastic Book Fair (October 31st-Nov. 4th)

It’s BACK! Our Scholastic Book Fair will take place in the library from Monday October 31st thru Friday, November 4th. It will be open for families to shop on Wednesday evening from 5:30-7:30 .

We’re encouraging families to use the Scholastic Book Fair eWallet. The eWallet is a safe and secure alternative to cash. You can create a free account and add funds that will allow your child to select books. When they come to the fair, we’ll look up their eWallet. The eWallet is a great alternative to cash.

Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with eWallet and online shopping:

Students can bring their Grandparents’ and Special Friends to shop the Book Fair when they visit PPE on Thursday, November 3rd and Friday, November 4th.

If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop at our school’s Online Book Fair. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Your online orders will benefit our school as well.

Thank-you for your help with this year’s Book Fair! Don’t hesitate to email Miss Stuart with further questions.

Happy reading!
